Summer Playlist- Old School Rock

Now that summer is just around the corner and everyone will be out this Memorial Weekend, I thought I'd post a few of my favorite songs/playlists from my collection this week leading up to the start of summer. I've tried to keep the list to my top 10, but I'm sure there will be a few posts with 12....or 15. Ok, I'll keep it under 20- promise. Each playlist will have a theme, and today's is Old School Rock. I grew up listening to my Dad's stuff because I didn't have an older sister/brother to teach me who NKOTB were....seriously, had no clue about them or why my friend Sissy was so obsessed. Luckily, I had other friends who did have older siblings and I totally love Whitney, Mariah, and Tiffany thanks to them.

This playlist is for easy car rides, laying out by the pool, and great music to BBQ or listen to on the boat. My old roomie used to call this my "Utah" music when I would play it while cleaning. LOL.  Ever list contains my favorites and I'm sure there's tons of great songs I've left off, so PLEASE leave your favorite in a comment below! I'm hoping to add some really great songs this week, just in time for my first summer vacation.
